Tamim is fined Tk half a million. Apparently he crossed the limit, unlike other players who criticized the pitch, by pointing out the outfield was poor too!

Quote:
“Tamim's one was totally different. I cannot tell you many things officially now because the impact will be on Bangladesh cricket. But his words were dangerous for Bangladesh cricket; it could have or could still seriously harm our cricket.”

Upon a little coaxing, as ever, this matter of apparent grave national cricket security went from unspeakable to shareable in a matter of seconds. “A player can talk about the pitch, but why should you talk about the outfield, what was wrong with the outfield? Our outfield has already been given two demerit points. You know that if it gets four there will be no matches in Dhaka (Fatullah, upon last check, is still a part of Dhaka).”

He added, his voice at times rising with anger, that no Indian player had complained in the recent pollution-marred Test between India and Sri Lanka in New Delhi, where Sri Lankan players had worn masks and there were multiple instances of players vomiting on the field.

Hassan, and BCB director Mahbub Anam, both said that Tamim's utterances (and according to Mahbub that included the player's words to the media about the fiasco of the second qualifier being carried over into the next day without such a provision present in the BPL bylaws) was a factor in him losing the vice-captaincy.

The Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium received two demerit points from the ICC when the then newly laid turf was deemed substandard during the first Test against Australia last August. It is hard to imagine that a player saying that “the outfield also becomes less green and slow [during BPL]” as Tamim did while complaining about the pitch after the match would be enough to garner two more demerit points. To call a spade a spade, this and the recommended Tk 5 lakh fine (which Mahbub did not want to disclose but Hasan's incontinence did not permit to remain secret) are the proverbial cutting of Tamim's wings simply because he criticised his employers publicly.

Meanwhile, a serial breacher of discipline and a person who has assaulted a young boy during a BCB-sanctioned cricket match may find himself playing in the tri-series against Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe, and then his domestic ban will not mean much, even though Hassan reminded everyone that the punishment was not lenient because it is a financial blow to be missing out from the contract and the Dhaka Premier League.

Although a bit off point, but you do bring a good point.

Ekhon to mukh harap hoy. Power hungry ethics police selector ra ashol jinish e focus na koira ajaira shob jinish e matha ghamay. Is the sh- word acceptable here in this forum? You know my wife's brother...

Anyways, my wife's brothers... ajaira jinishey matha ghamay.

How about:
  • strength and core conditioning coach?
  • a dietitian that actually forces people to quit sugar?
  • a stellar sports psychologists who focuses on self-talk, visualziation/imagery, positive psychology, breathing, mediation etc, mental toughness and fearlessness?
  • infra red sauna, state of the art facility such as with flotation tank and sensory deprivation as well as quality masseuse, shiatsu?
  • focus on coordination, balance, NFL like ladder drills that should be part and parcel of every Level III coach and make training innovative, exciting and challenging every week?
  • working on the grass roots level, using bouncy flat pitches of Aussies, more pacer academy and pace hunt, improving quality of local league and ffs stop playing picnic cricket at small fields like Savar (?)
  • focusing more on fitness and less on technique?
  • using other variety of sports - heck even horsemanship or swimming or water polo- to develop other lesser used muscles?
  • fun recreational activities and hobbies for lateral thinking and creativity instead of stupid Brian Lara video games lol or dumbass bowling on Rifle Square so that they don't do stupid stuff like go to clubs and pop molly's?
  • using ambidexterity as novel approach?
  • incorporating yoga and pilate for flexibility?

See when you focus more in the good stuffs, the less evil stuffs usually fall away. As we say, you never get rid of bad habits instead you replace them with good ones...

Learning never stops. Btw, I mention sensory deprivation tank ..lol not because I used it and changed my life but also just look at Steph Curry man. He along with his Golden State buddy used it. Frikkin master at work.

Point being. Try to be outcome driven. Results at all cost. Without breaking laws and rules such as doping and ish. I bet Jobs isn't the only one who did LSD. Heck even Sergei Brin of Google and Musk prolly all dosed on acid in Burning Man...

Absolutely fantastic piece by Mohammad Isam. Brilliant. Loved his appreciatory angle of all perspectives.

Why fining Tamim Iqbal will make little sense

The BCB's hardline on disciplinary matters has the dual effect of pleasing many cricket fans but also making some players uncomfortable about expressing themselves.

Cases in point: Sabbir Rahman's punishment, and Tamim Iqbal's proposed fine. There is hardly a fan in Bangladesh who feels that the sanctions imposed on Sabbir is anything other than what he deserves. But the proposal to penalise Tamim for his comments on the condition of the playing field in Mirpur during a BPL match is the BCB enforcing a severe form of censorship.

After Comilla Victorians and Rangpur Riders struggled to get past 100 in their game on December 2, Tamim had heavily criticised the pitch and wondered whether the curator could have worked harder on it. He also made a passing mention of the outfield, but seemed mainly frustrated by how Mirpur couldn't produce a better T20 pitch.
